Tastes of Italy; About Culinary Travel

Posted on: August 25, 2009

I just saw the following tweet:

msnbc_travel: Steves: Tuning in to tasty Italy http://bit.ly/T8gh3

“Tuning in to a tasty Italy”.  I couldn’t agree more with that heading.  In my opinion, tuning in to the food, wine, culinary traditions and heritage of a destination is one of the best ways to get to know a place, its people, and their culture.   When a native tells you about his or her country, you’re more apt to hear “My grandma used to make this dish.” or “My family went there every summer and every holiday,” as opposed to something that sounds like they’re reading out of a textbook.

These are the types of experiences that we as travelers collect, remember, and cherish.   To inspire more thoughts on food and travel to Italy, see our Tuscany Culinary Tour sample itinerary.

Let us know what you think, what your idea of an ideal trip to Italy is, and what your favorite Italian dishes are!
